Ellie has loved every minute of the training with Paws Positive Dog Training. She hasn’t always managed to do things straight away but we have been given the “tools” to work with her further. Her recall is excellent, even with distractions. She now sits quietly at the lounge door if someone rings the bell, instead of going mental. We’re both delighted with the difference in the 8 weeks we’ve been attending. Thank you very much Jane & Paul More...

Jane has helped us with our 12 month old rescue dog with recall loose lead, the 8 week course has been very intense, giving you a series of tools to use in your training in a fun way. The progress we have made is great, not perfect but I wouldn’t except that in 8 weeks. I would recommend for anyone who has not done puppy training first to do this course. this is an outside course and we’ve had rain, hail, sleet, snow and 70 mile an hour winds, all tried to hold us back but onwards we battled and Jane calmly carried on. Thankyou again xx More...

I'll open with: 5*. We have just completed the puppy training class and we loved it. Our dog, and us, got so much from the 8 week course and we have seen a huge change in him. We can't wait to start on loose lead and intermediate in the months to come. A big thank you to Jane and Paul for the training and for putting up with our little character! We would highly recommend this training and hope to use the day care services in the future too. More...

I have just completed the beginners course and have almost completed the loose lead and recall course and can highly recommend them both. I have thoroughly enjoyed them and the games based training was very rewarding for both me and my dog. The dogs learn “cues” rather than “commands” and quickly pick up what to do in a kind dog friendly manner. Jayne and Paul are excellent and very knowledgeable trainers and dog behaviour specialists. I am looking forward to moving onto the next course. More...

Fantastic training. Completed the Beginners course with our little Chihuahua Jasper and he passed. The training is excellent, they cover everything you need for a beginner. We started with a little yappy dog, who was distracted by everything to a calmer dog who is better on and off his lead. Great advice given throughout on all topics. Jasper is more confident and so are we. Would highly recommend their training and they offer loads of different courses and doggy day care. Thank you all so very much. More...

I recently attended the Perfect Walk training course with my over enthusiastic young dog. This course focused on loose lead walking and recall. I found the course to be very well structured using simple games and exercises which my dog found to be fun and easy to learn. The exercises were built upon each week so that my dog could gradually learn how to walk on the lead better and recall. With only 5-10 mins training practice each day, he is definitely a changed dog after 6 weeks and I’ve been left well equipped with the tools to continue his training and develop him further. Both instructors Jane and Paul were excellent. They took time to spend with each dog/owner in our small training group and supported us in between times in a private Facebook group where you could find all the detailed training notes as well as ask advice or even submit videos for commentary and further advice. This course was excellent value for money and I will definitely be attending further training courses with Paws Positive. More...

We did the puppy training classes with our pup which were brilliant. And recently found ourselves needing help with some issues with our boy, jumping up, barking and biting, mainly at meal times. We had a session last night which was fantastic, the change in him not only during our session but not even 24 hours later is amazing. We know we have some way to go but we will keep at it !

After just completing the beginners course i am in complete amazement the progress made in such a short space of time with my Cockapoo, she is the typical hyper fussy character that is well known in this breed but also has an incredibly anxious side and a very stubborn will and deaf ear at times. Jane taught me how to work on boundaries with star and how to control her pulling on the lead more easily which has been a big issue with star when she gets over excited, it has also given me so much more confidence to try off lead with Star on walks after seeing how easily she returned to me during the classes. I can already see after the first course the changes in Stars mindset and how she is approaching things and listening to commands, I am looking forward to the next course with Star to work on the areas she still struggles with and also for myself to learn how to instruct my dog properly because I have also discovered a lot of stars issues has been down to my own errors and not her own. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...

I contacted Jane after discovering my two year old patterdale terrier was terrible with babies. Tib would jump, bark, lunge and whine whenever he was around babies. As we were pregnant we were worried about him and our babies safety and desperate to do everything we could to prepare him for the upcoming changes. At five months pregnant Jane came to our home and gave us the training techniques and games needed to help Tib prepare. We were armed with the games, given handouts and Jane was on call to guide us should we have any questions or need any extra support. That extra bit of support off Jane was incredibly helpful as naturally different situations occurred which we were not prepared for. For eg: a friend brought a crawling baby around which sent Tib into a frenzy. I contacted Jane in a panic but she calmly pointed out Tib needed to be DMT’d to a baby been on the floor. After doing the training games as much as we could (4-5 x a week) in the run up to our daughter been born were happy to say that after 1 week of her been home Tib is doing fantastic! We’re still doing the training with Tib BUT ONLY to desensitise him to the different items of hers we bring into the home. We are no longer worried, he is doing so well he even sits on the sofa with us all (baby included) ????. We are so thankful to Jane, we really were worried as Tibs behaviour was so bad we did not know if he would be safe to be around a baby. I can’t recommend Paws Positive Dog Training enough ???? ???? ???? ???? ???? More...

Was concerned my 10 month nervous Romanian rescue dog wouldn’t cope with a puppy class but the recall class in a field that Jane told me about was perfect! It was 2 hours and it gave Nala time to settle and she behaved perfectly! The trainers were great! Informative, funny, relaxed and respectful! Would highly recommend. I’ve booked another class! ????

I 1,000,000% recommend Paws 4 a Break! They have taken such good care of my old dog, Harry. We had tried every kennel in the area and Harry would come back, hurt, stressed and unhappy so I knew this time round he needed something special and special is what we found. My old boy will not be going any else now, they have taken such great care of him and I know Harry was happy because his tail hasn’t stopped wagging. For the first time in a long time I’m not worried about leaving him with these fabulous people! I recommend to everyone that they leave their precious fur babies here for peace of mind knowing they are getting spoiled themselves x x thank you once again for taking such good care of my old boy x x x More...

I messaged Paws 4 a break on Friday and Martyn came to meet my little Red on Friday night. Now if anyone knew red he’s very particular on whom he does near but he got along with Martyn as soon as he came through the door. They played and Martyn didn’t hold back in rolling on the floor with Red. Red has had his first walk today and Martyn rang me to reassure me Red was okay. I couldn’t ask for someone better, Red seemed tired and happy when I got home. Martyn made me feel like Red is in safe hands. I can’t wait to see the pictures.
